    Serious performance uphill and down.

    The second-stiffest boot in Tecnica's Cochise freeride touring line, the Cochise 120 Men's Ski Boot's an ideal blend of uphill performance, downhill shredability, and comfort. It's built on a 99mm last and rocks a 120 flex that's burlier than the 110 for more gnar-thrashing power on the descent. Other than that, it's the same, and that's more than all right. Tecnica made the shell out of a lighter, thinner Triax 3.0 plastic cuff and a brand-new, anatomically shaped C.A.S. lower shell. C.A.S. has a unique dimpling structure that makes heating and punching faster and more effective for bootfitters, which means you're in for an extremely comfortable ski season. The ski/walk mode also offers forty-two degrees of rotation this time around, giving you a more natural stride to take the hip-flexor pain out of longer approaches.

    You'd expect a Tecnica boot to have bomber downhill performance, and, well, the 120 doesn't disappoint. It comes kitted out with a snug, sturdy, thermo-moldable C.A.S. liner that wraps your foot and resists packing out, and a PowerLock top buckle/power strap combo that provides a super-snug and sturdy wrap around your shin and calf for power and control. Four rugged aluminum buckles lock the shell down around your foot, and the asymmetrical toe box provides a high-performance fit without cobra-squeezing your toes to death. Tecnica also equipped the Cochise with low tech inserts that are compatible with both tech and alpine DIN bindings, and included an easy-flexing Quick Instep panel for easy on and off, even when temperatures are hovering around "North Pole in January" levels.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    tried a few different resort/touring boots. this is by far the best. the hike mode is super easy to flick on an off. plenty stiff for downhill and a little extra room in the width makes them really comfy. liner is so warm my feet actually sweat sometimes. they're a tad on the big side for me...i'm a 9 sneaker wearing the 26.5 and they could be a tiny bit snugger, but i'm typically in between sizes so i'm not surprised. just finished my 6th season with them and they're still in great shape, despite me beating the hell out of them on the slopes. GREAT BOOT

    Brilliant boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have to say these are the best boots I've worn. I've tried the mountain labs 98mm but they're too narrow for my feet. These are 1mm wider (99mm) and fit like a glove. I have wide feet. Comfort is key and worth every penny.

    Love the boot but too big...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this boot but it is probably a bit too large. I typically wear a 10-10.5 street shoe and have worn 26.5 and 27.5 boots in the past. I purchased ended up going with a 27.5 but after the liner packed in I am wishing i had gone for the 26.5.

    An everyday boot with touring tendencies.

    Great boot!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Huge upgrade from a K2 Pinnacle 130, after thermo-fitting the boot fit like a glove. 1 day on the hill and I was ready to tackle all terrain. I use the boot for adult GS racing, resort on-piste skiing and out west back country bowl/glade skiing. Tried on at a local ski shop, but since they could not get it in time I ordered from 100% satisfied and super fast shipping.

    I have flatter/wide feet and the 99mm last works great. The 120 flex is perfect for the bigger more aggressive skier that wants maximum input to be transferred into the skis. I run these boots on GS, ALL MT, and POW skis.

    Great boot!

    Favorite alpine boot I've ever used

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my first pair of Technicas, and I'm impressed. I've skied in 130 flex boots forever, and I was a little reluctant to go to a 120 flex, but these are plenty beefy for charging soft snow at the resort. The flex and tongue were also nice for my beat up shins, They fit my low volume feet perfectly, without even cooking them. The combo alpine/tech comparable bindings are a plus, too, making them good to go for multiple pairs of skis. Also noticeably lighter than typical alpine boots, good for sidecountry or short tours, but too heavy, and without enough range of motion, for long tours. Overall, a great product.

    Great boots for us "50/50" kinda people

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love skiing in the backcountry, but also enjoy a few open-to-close resort days? Look no further. They are light and have a decent range of motion for touring, but also have a super solid feel when locked in ski mode. Tecnica's roots are in racing and hard charging big mountains. The performance on these is more important than the weight, but they are still much lighter than your average alpine boot. These boots fit my foot like a glove, and have a great flex for relatively aggressive skiers. They'll fit pretty much any alpine or tech binding as-is with no need to change the sole. I've put about 10 resort days and 10 tours in on them so far, and not a single complaint.

    I wear a 9.5 shoe and was fitted for a 26.5. From all the brands I have tried on, Tecnicas fit my foot the best.

    The Complete Package

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Got these for my brother who has been my ski partner since we could walk and here's what he had to say:

    These boost are amazing! I am moving over from an older Nordica Ace of Spades and the first thing i noticed was how much lighter these boots are. Right out of the box they had a great fit and I would attribute that to the quality of the liner in the boots.

    I have used these boots about 10 days, a couple out touring in the Wasatch and the rest skiing the resorts. The hike/ ski mode is great feature and a cinch to use. It makes long tours so much better with the additional movement the hike mode provides.

    The number one reason I bought these boots is that they are both Alpine DIN and tech binding compatible. I have used them both in a Rossi FKS binding and Marker Kingpin binding and they have performed flawlessly in both.

    If you are looking to trade in those tech boots and old alpine boots for one complete package, I highly recommend the Tecnica Cochise 120. I'm a size 9.5 shoe and have the size 26.5 boots

    Perfect for a wide foot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this boot to pair with the beast 16 bindings. They are crazy light and perfect for my wide foot shape. I wear a 9 and bought the 26.5. The first day was a little rough due to it being a new boot but after loosening the turn buckles slightly the rest of the day was awesome. I highly recommend this boot if you are trying to get the best of both touring and all mountain. I use mine as an everyday boot.

    So far so good!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these boots at the beginning of the season and so far I really like them! I have used them in the resort and for touring with about 15 days total in them so far. Everyday they get a little more comfy. I am 185lbs and really like the 120 flex. For touring they have been great as well with very little numbness or rubbing, which is generally an issue for me. They also have a really great buckle system on the top buckles that self adjust for when you are in walk mode that seems to work very well. Over all I would say if you are in the market for a resort boot that you can tour in or only have the cash for one pair of boots, these fit the bill nicely. I would absolutely recommend these!
